Intellectual Property

Health Enterprise East has extensive experience helping clients gain a greater understanding of their intellectual property (IP) position and jointly developing a plan to defend and protect their assets.


A rigorous IP strategy will maximise your innovation’s commercial potential, so we objectively analyse your product to determine which aspects may be protectible by law.

We will Assess the competitive landscape – Working collaboratively with you, we develop specific searches to explore potential areas of prior art and competing art, or any evidence that your invention may not be entirely novel.


Value of Innovation

We can then evaluate and advise you on what and how to protect – There are many different intellectual property rights including patents, design rights, trademarks, copyright and know-how (trade secrets). Based on the specific attributes of your technology we will assess different ways to protect your future revenue streams and maximise the value of your innovation.
